Wireless Sensor Networks

Metromatics delivers a complete Wireless Sensor Network Solution.

It is simple.  Choose your wireless sensor nodes, select your gateway, install or connect to your software, turn on, configure and start receiving real time reports and notifications from your wireless sensor system.

Collect, monitor, and record torque, vibration, voltage, temperature, strain, shock, pressure, inclination, load and acceleration – wirelessly!

What is a Wireless Sensor Network?

Wireless Sensor Networks are also known as a WSN. Wireless Sensor Networks are a network of autonomous wireless sensors spread over a certain area or space.   They collect, monitor, and record the physical or environmental conditions.  Such as pressure, sound, vibration, and temperature and send this data throughout the network to a main location.


Are there different types of Wireless Sensor Networks?  What are these?

Yes, there are three main different types of wireless sensor networks.

  1. Mesh networks

Mesh networks are composed of nodes that are connected to each other in a mesh topology.  Therefore, allowing data to be routed from one node to another.

  1. Star networks

Star networks are composed of a central node that is connected to multiple other nodes.  Therefore, allowing data to be routed from the central node to other nodes.

  1. Hybrid networks

Hybrid networks are a combination of mesh and star networks.  Data routed.  One node to another.


Our Wireless Sensor Network System is manufactured by LORD Microstrain.  They use a wireless network based on the IEEE 802.15.14 standard.  Firstly, IEEE 802.15.14 is a wireless communication standard.  It defines the physical layer and medium access control layer for low rate personal area networks (LR-WPANs).  Therefore, it designed to provide low cost, power and data rate wireless communication.  Ideal for applications such as home automation, medical monitoring and industrial sensing.


Advantages of a WSN

The advantages of WSN include

  • Scalable increase sensor nodes as your data requirements increase
  • Cost efficient
  • More flexible
  • Greater mobility
  • Easier to install and maintain
  • More secure and less vulnerable to physical tampering
  • More energy efficient as require less power to operate or run off battery.


WSN Applications

  • Structural Health Monitoring
  • Equipment Performance Monitoring, Verification, Evaluation and Diagnostics
  • Test & Measurement
  • System Control and Environmental Monitoring
  • Amusement Ride Testing


LORD Microstrain WSN allow simultaneous, high speed sensing and data acquisition from multiple strain gauges, accelerometers, temperature and millivolt inputs for a variety of applications and industries.
